Özet

Licorice root has glycyrrhizic acid as the active ingredient and is responsible for a primary hyperaldosteronism-like syndrome with hypokalemia, metabolic alkalosis, and hypertension, typically accompanying low aldosterone. Herein, we present a rare complication of licorice consumption with acute renal failure.
